Autumn woods

In Images, Nature, Photography by Felicity Martin

It may be a dull week weatherise, but under the tree canopy the autumn colours are glowing. I shot these photographs rather late in the afternoon, as the light was fading, which meant that they required long shutter speeds (up to 20 seconds). That has made their tones rich and has blurred the water to a misty softness.

All the photos were taken in Comrie Woods, around the River Lednock on the north side of the village. The area is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) because of the biodiversity of its oak woods, although I have focussed mainly on the colourful old beech trees found in the woods.
